For some people "debunked" simply means that someone has provided a plausible-sounding refutation that's easier to follow than the truth.

It's like when you tell a 4-year-old to wash their hands for dinner and they turn the water on, stand there for 10 seconds with the water running, then turn it off. They did a thing at the sink with water, so now you have to spend 10 minutes defining "wash" and "your" and "hands".

And you know they'll do it again tomorrow.
